If President Barack Obama and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi were walking through the streets of 1700s and 1800s America, spewing the same garbage that they are spewing to Americans today, they would more than likely be tossed in jail. Back in those days folks like them were put in jail and detained as obstructionists.
And what makes it even worse for Americans is the fact that these very same people and their fellow liberal progressives, and with the help of the very liberal lame stream media, want desperately for them to believe that it is entirely the Republicans fault for this government shutdown. This Democratic Party headed by Barack Obama would not know the word compromise if it jumped up and slapped them across the face.
If one will think back to the days of President Reagan, and House Speaker Tip O'Neill, and the number of government shutdowns that took place back then, you'd find two different leaders on opposite ends of the spectrum, who understood what compromise meant. They understood that a complete shutdown of the American government was not a good thing. But they also understood very well the importance of compromise and how it could set the country and the government on the path that it needs to be to function properly.
It's hard to remember a time when the American leadership was so determined to keep and maintain a law that was so disliked by the American people. This administration and the legacy of this president, will definitely be remembered for their uncanny ability to obstruct justice, fairness, and get out of the way of the will of the people.
And it is true, that people such as politicians, local and national lawmakers were put in jail as obstructionists. And while it was not on the same level as treason, people did look upon it with the same level of seriousness. Today, any Democrat can get in the way and get away with it. Try that as a Republican and see what happens!
It is so simple, but Obama and Reid and company, like they do with everything else, want to complicate matters. And sadly, so often times they get away with. Just as they seem to be today. Although with all of the other scandals this White House is facing its hard to say. But this president does seem to do a lot of skating.
But while all of this is going on we can be none too happy about the performance of the Republican Party. They show no leadership, no guts, they allow themselves to get tromped all over, and for Pete's sakes don't seem to want to come up with any other viable solutions to our problems. Now granted.... When they do, many times the Dems led by Harry Reid cast their ideas off as stupid and worthless and non-workable, but Republicans won't fight back and will oft times just bury their heads and say oh well. We thought it sounded good!
It's only a matter of time before the American people say enough is enough. This country just simply cannot continue to run with a government that obviously cannot function. It's as though Congress is dead in the water without a rudder. And obviously without a captain.
Not once in all of Barack Obama's presidency has he, or anyone under his leadership bowed to the will of the people. And on every occasion possible he has obstructed the will of the American people....and not once in his entire presidency had he owned any of this country's problems. It is always someone or something else that is wrong....never him as the president.
I cannot think of any other way to put it....but based on Harry Reid's latest comments, he is an evil man. And is simply not good for this country. Neither is this president. There's just no other way to say it. And this latest fiasco with the government shutdown is just another black mark, among many already against them. I am sad and deeply hurt by the direction that this country is going. We're just wallowing in our own stench right now, and we have leadership that seems just fine with that. We as citizens just don't count for anything anymore.....and this administration continues to prove it to us everyday.
It's too bad that they won't take a little stroll back through history, and just try to imagine what out Founding Fathers would say if they could see this mess that this government has gotten us into. And yes....they actually did put people in jail for obstruction, and politicians too!
